Two-For-One, Textural Edition

I didn't really know what to do for a theme this week, and then I realized that I have acquired some really cool clothes with really interesting textures and fabrics, so I'd do outfits focused on them this week:
Key necklace-Made by me
Cream and black lace dress-Suva flea market
Black corded tights-Wal-Mart
Black chunky Mary Janes-The Warehouse

Faux pearl necklace-Inherited
Black shrug-Rainbow
White tank top-Savers
Newsprint corset-Punk69
Black and white striped handwarmers-Claire's
Black fishnet over white satin skirt-Paper Bag Princess
Black boots-Target
The first dress, I love. It is short but not too short, playful, and it has pockets. Yay pockets! I also love the combination of cream and black lace. In the second outfit, the newsprint corset and the skirt are battling it out for my favorite item-the corset is an old favorite, but the skirt is a new acquisition. It was $20, which is more than I usually spend on one item, but it was SO. GORGEOUS. that I didn't even hesitate. The white satin lining is bias-cut, so it has a wonderful swinging fullness to it. I feel very much a punk princess in it, between the full, elegant cut and the fishnet outer layer. It's seriously amazing, and totally worth the extra money! Do any of you have a piece that cost a little more but you *had* to have?


  1. That newsprint corset is made of amazing!
    Most of the big spends in my wardrobe are corsets because I guest custom sized, steel boned corsets.

  2. Nice - the first outfit has a bit a grown up Wednesday Addams touch.

  3. Very nice texture mixing. And YES to that second skirt!
